Using Cone Beam Technology Can Help if You Get Dental Implants


Posted on 3/15/2020 by Vladana Babcic Tal DMD
Using Cone Beam Technology Can Help if You Get Dental ImplantsThe technology behind dental implants and their installation process has changed over the years. Today, we make use of cone beam technology, a new type of computed tomography.

That's a technical term for a special X-Ray of the mouth. While we use standard dental X-Ray technology in many cases, sometimes it's not enough. This is especially true when we're looking at the jaw bone to determine where to place the posts for dental implants.

How Cone Beam Technology Works

Cone beam technology allows us to cre3ate a fully three-dimensional image of your jaw bone. This image includes the bone, the nerves, the soft tissue, and everything else. It gives us a very accurate and highly detailed image of your jaw so that we can precisely determine where to place your implant posts. This is done in one scan of your face, too, so you don't have to sit still for that long.

While cone beam scanners do work in a way that's similar to other computed tomography devices, they use a lot less radiation. The X-Rays don't hit your entire face. Instead, they're concentrated in a cone shape that is moved around your jaw. This gives us a number of images we can use to review your jaw, neck, and face without bombarding you with radiation.

Preparing for a Cone Beam Scan

When you come in for your cone beam scan, there's really nothing that you need to do. We may have you take off anything metal, including jewelry and your glasses. Other than that, you don't need to wear anything special or do anything before your appointment. All you have to do is sit still for about 20 seconds. You won't feel anything during the scan.
